Verizon Wireless cracks open door for LTE developers

Jessica Scarpati Jessica Scarpati Profile: Jessica Scarpati

Mark your calendars. Verizon Wireless will host a webcast on Jan. 20 at 11 a.m. ET to review updated specs, originally released in April, for developers building wireless devices and applications that will operate on its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network being built on the Upper 700MHz C-Block spectrum.

According to Verizon:

The updated specifications address network access and SMS requirements and data retry test plans, as well as include new information about lab and signaling conformance, the open development device approval and introduction process and more. These documents will help guide developers into the next phase of bringing their LTE devices to the Verizon Wireless network.

Verizon Wireless plans to launch its 4G LTE wireless network in 25 to 30 markets next year and cover virtually all of its current nationwide 3G footprint with the next-generation network by the end of 2013. The company’s 4G LTE network will ultimately connect a full range of electronics devices and machines.

    Indeed, we are in the technological advancement! Another reason to convince us why I had this conclusion in mind is because Verizon Wireless has announced they are launching a 4G system last Sunday, Dec. 5. The proof is here: Verizon 4G LTE network to launch Sunday The 4G technology Verizon is utilizing is called LTE. 4G simply means that this is the 4th generation wireless network. No Verizon cell phones yet support the 4G network technologies. Verizon plans on rolling out 4G cell phones in January.
